Way to go Tuff! All that hard work deserves an extra treat. Tell him you don't work for free

Looking good Tuff...you show the old man you can hold a sit...and hopefully he'll give you a big YES and a bigger treat to follow!

Sonny, the black lab, ran ahead to make sure there were no gophers or jackrabbits in the way. If you don't give a dog a specific job, he'll improvise one for himself and it will invariably be fun. There's a lesson there.

Tuff is adorable!!! I saw the cutest video of someone with three chocolate labs who were all doing sit stays a couple feet from their respective food bowls. It was hilarious because the owner was saying "their" prayers "Thank you God for our food and our bones, please give us the strength to run around the yard and the patience not to get in any doggy fights, etc, etc" and then he said "Amen" and they all bounded for their food. He had clearly taught Amen as a release word and the whole thing was hilarious.
